Reboot: 30 days
How did you learn about Reboot with Joe?
I had just bought Amazon Prime and I wanted to try watching a movie and Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead was the first one that caught my eye. I watched it and watched it again. It was like a light had been turned on inside me and I decided to juice and do a 30 day juice fast.
What inspired you to do a Reboot?
My inspiration came from watching the documentary and what the people in the documentary accomplished while on their juice fasts and by incorporating juicing in their everyday lives. If they could do it, why couldn’t I? I also wanted to set a good example and be around/healthy for my husband and our 3 children ages 3, 2 and 4 months.
How did the experience go for you?
It was a rewarding experience. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done but it was so worth every minute of it. I recognized so many habits that I had formed and I had to break. I loved the challenge.
How much weight did you lose (even if that wasn’t your goal!)?
I lost a total of 28 lbs in 30 days and after day 30 I continue to juice all day and eat a healthy meal at dinner. By day 32 I was down 30 lbs and many inches. My clothes are fitting loose and I am wearing smaller jeans. Currently I am on day 41! I’m feeling so much better!
Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
I am definitely not as tired. I have more energy. My skin is glowing and definitely softer. I am not out of breath when doing anything physical like going up stairs.
What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
Days 2 through 4 were the toughest for me. I also had trouble with the evening time because at work I can go all day without eating much but then when I would get home I was so hungry that I would get junk food or primarily unhealthy food to eat and that is when I would actually eat and eat more than I should. So when juicing I recognized that in evening was tough for me because that’s when my body was used to eating. I would make my family food but I could not eat it, so I would juice and listen to music to take my mind off being so hungry.
What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I juice during the day and have a healthy meal at dinner time.
What is your lasting impression of the Reboot experience?
AMAZING! I am so thankful that I watched the documentary and that it opened my eyes. It saved me from heading down a dangerously unhealthy path. This has been an AWESOME experience and now I have lots of people juicing at the hospital I work at and my friends & family too! YAY!! They all thought I was crazy at first then they saw the weight coming off and actually watched the Documentary like I had recommended and now they are asking me for help with their juicing….it is an incredible feeling to know I had such an influence on them like Joe had on me! Thank you for getting back to me.
